Religions in My Neighborhood helps children understand the importance of social and cultural differences among members of their living and learning communities. It allows them to feel comfortable noticing and discussing religious differences and to see those differences as a normal, understandable, and interesting part of their world. The curriculum, geared to grades K-4 but readily adaptable, supplements pre-existing curricula or stands on its own for short-term or after-school programs.
